Vincent Lavergne, founder and director of Vincent Lavergne Architecture and Urban Planning, explains to us how the Watt tower is such a special project in Paris. Leaning against the base covering the railroad tracks, the Watt Tower is in a position of pivot and urban connector between two eras, between two levels of the city, the old and the new.It is rare in France for a tower, often an isolated object, to concentrate so many development issues in the neighborhood in which it is located: the project here goes beyond the simple architectural transformation of the building to constitute a strong signal of the urban transformation of the neighborhood.Image teaser DR © Sound engineering : Julien Rebours___If you like the podcast do not hesitate:. to subscribe so you don't miss the next episodes,. to leave us stars and a comment :-),. to follow us on Instagram @comdarchipodcast to find beautiful images, always chosen with care, so as to enrich your view on the subject.Nice week to all of you !

Trevor explains their design process and how context and the client's needs are key to creating someone's dream home, and what zoning changes could help make that happen. Habitat is known for sustainable design, and Ryan asks Trevor about their 18 sustainable design choices. Trevor explains how choices like a true 9'-1” basement ceiling height can make a big difference. Trevor explains to Mariah how they can achieve zero thermal bridging and .5 air exchanges per hour. Listen in to hear how Habitat brings design and sustainability together! A 1989 graduate of NAIT's architecture and design program, Trevor Hoover joined the team as a draftsman in 1994. Now one of the partners and head of Habitat's design section, he oversees every unique design produced by the “studio” side of the operation. He guides each Habitat client through the collaborative process of concepts, drawings and blueprints that precedes the building phase of every project. Trevor has earned widespread respect and recognition for his distinctive designs.

In this episode of URBAN NATURE, Geographer and Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA Susanna Hecht and Gabriel Kozlowski discuss the Amazon region through the lenses of political ecology. Hecht offers a panorama of the major transformations the region went through over the last century from both a local and global perspective. In the process, she emphasizes the need to break with the idea of the Amazon as a frontier, as well as with the intellectual divide between nature and culture. In the third episode, our guest is Susanna Hecht. Professor Hecht is a specialist on tropical development in Latin America, especially the Amazon Basin and Central America. Her research focuses on the political economies of development ranging from corporate frontiers of cattle and export commodity agriculture (like soy, and oil palm) to populist land occupation. She also studies their comparative environmental and social impacts. She also explores alternatives to destructive development and analyzes the forms of conservation in inhabited landscapes whether through indigenous technologies, non-timber extractive products, niche markets as well as new tenurial forms (such as extractive reserves), social movements and globalization, including the role of remittances and migratory networks in reshaping rural land uses. The impacts of emerging green markets and greenhouse gas offsets for smaller-scale farmers also form part of her research concerns. As one of the founders of the analytic approach known as Political Ecology, Dr Hecht has been engaged in understanding the theoretical and institutional dynamics that underpin deforestation and its alternatives. “That ideology of frontier is the ideology of conquest, and it doesn't reflect reality. It's a discursive way of creating a boundary. So what it does is that the frontier basically says there's no real civilization. On the other side of this. We are the civilization, and we'll just come to the frontier. We'll change the way it integrates into the world through our systems.” —Susanna Hecht, Geographer, Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA - A '74PODCAST Series, URBAN NATURE is hosted by Gabriel Kozlowski, Brazilian architect and curator working on urbanization from the perspective of political ecology. The Series presents guests from a diverse set of disciplines—including Anthropology, Biology, Philosophy, Political Science, Political Theory, Geography, Architecture, and the Arts, among others—that have been reflecting on the relationship between humans and nature. The episode was recorded on Zoom in July 2022. Produced by ISTANBUL'74.

Architecture critic and author, Alexandra Lange joins us today to talk about her latest book, Meet Me By The Fountain: An Inside History Of The Mall. As it's title suggests, Meet Me By The Fountain explores the beginnings and development of the American shopping mall, but rewards our nostalgic gaze with a fascinating look at the mall as architectural challenge and sociological phenomenon. As a response to the changing relationships to consumerism and urban space in the post-World War II period, the shopping mall soared in popularity for Americans in large part because it offered at once a space for consumerist escape and nearly complete environmental and social control. It shaped its won social culture, shot through with all of the prejudices of the world outside but with the promise of experiential transformation. In Meet Me By The Fountain, the shopping mall emerges as a uniquely postmodern public space grounded in the perennial human longing for social connection, and the nostalgia we feel for that space in the present demonstrates its ongoing appeal, even in the present when it is considered to be, if not dead, dying an all-but certain death. Also, Elvia Wilk, author of the essay collection Death By Landscape, returns to recommend both Marlen Haushofer's 1963 novel The Wall (German: Die Wand) and Ned Beauman's new novel Venomous Lumpsucker.

Luckily, however, new trends in housing are reshaping the way we live - from co-living spaces with shared utilities, resources, and perks to chic tiny homes to eco-conscious villages like Serenbe that encourage community, wellness, and biophilia. Our guest is Diana Lind, author of ‘Brave New Home', which investigates how the single-family home became synonymous with the American Dream before delving into the paradigm shifts making housing more accessible and environmentally aware.
